I had this issue too, though it is working now. if you can connect through putty I would recommend just logging in and typing "reboot" to properly reset your edison and hitting enter, it doesn't always work but it is worth trying.
I tried that. But I can't connect to the edison:
08:55 $ ls /dev/cu*
08:55 $ screen /dev/cu.usbmodem1413 115200 -L
The terminal window running 'screen' just stays blank with a cursor blinking in the top left corner....
The board also hasn't got WiFi configured, so ssh is out of the question.
P.s. The 'Edison' volume is mounted (and empty), so the Edison has booted up.

Thanks for reaching out.
I’m sorry to hear you are getting this issue with your board. Could you please double check the steps stated here: Troubleshooting and Tips under “The setup tool is not detecting my board”? Additionally, I would like to know if you have installed Homebrew, dfu-util, coreutils, and gnu-getopt as it is indicated here: Flashing the OS Image on your Board with Mac* OS X*.
Moreover, in order to set up the serial terminal with a Mac* OS X*, check if both USB ports are recognized in your PC using ls /dev/cu.usb* command. The output should look similar to this one:
- /dev/cu.usbmodem1413 OTG port
- /dev/cu.usbserial-A502LRS6 Serial port
So you can connect to the USB serial device using the terminal screen utility by entering this command: screen /dev/xx.usbserial-XXXXXXXX 115200 –L. Please be sure to use the serial device which contains cu.usbserial. For more details refer to: Setting up a Serial Terminal with Mac* OS X*.
Hope you find this information useful.
I have only 1 USB port on my macbook pro....
But I have been able to connect to my board by supplying power from a USB power to the OTB port, and connecting the usb from my mac to the CONSOLE port.
After connecting, I was able to run do_ota in boot mode and use configure-edison --setup to set it all up.
It would have saved me a lot of time if it was explained why I should hook up a USB cable which each port.....
Thnx, I now have all three Edisons up & running !!
